Global Bonds

For the cash portion of my portfolio I am looking to add global bonds? Anyone have a opinion on IGOV ??

I have about 2M in cash assets in the following items so far:

CD's & Money markets 56% of cash avg 3.14% avg yield
Treasury Bonds directly invested at Treasury Direct - 16% of cash and coming due soon cant renew because of .4 % yields

Corporate bonds (LQD) 28% of cash with a 6% yield

Any opinion on the above cash portion of my portfolio?

I don't think bonds are normally thought of as part of the "cash portion"
of your portfolio.

Many people think global bonds are a waste.

I have two global bond funds, BEGBX and LSGLX. I'd like to consolidate,
but can't figure out which one to liquidate.
